Welcome to challenge # 6 at DCC & Friends. Our theme for this month is " Button-up". Any projects which include one or more buttons are welcome! You have until January 31st to enter and our usual rules apply (please see the side panel on the challenge blog for details).
The challenge is being sponsored by Dawn herself and the prize is a wonderful goody bag of crafty stash!
Here is my card for your inspiration. As you can see, it definately has more than one button - it has 24!
I wanted heart shaped buttons for this card but didn't have any left in my stash, so, I decided to make my own with Fimo. First I matted and layered an 8" x 8" card blank with silver mirri and a paper from MCS Quintessential Country garden. I wrapped a white and silver ribbon around them before fixing to the card.
Using the scalloped circle dies from Spellbinders, I cut shapes from silver mirri and plain white card.
I coloured the card with a blend of Spun Sugar and Shaded Lilac Distress Inks and attached the buttons in a heart shape.
I tied a bow with some wired lace ribbon and made a couple of stick pins with white and silver beads. I used Pinflair to attach these to the white ribbon.
I mixed the leftover Fimo and cut a butterfly button. Once baked I threaded coloured thread through the holes and twirled the ends. For the finishing touch I added some Candi in the top corner.
I hope you'll come and join in with this fun challenge. Please visit the DCC & Friends challenge blog for more inspiration from the fabulous DT and to check out the rules.
